I am new to MetaTrader and I have been using another program that I have had to go to great lengths to get the past Tick data to get accurate results for strategy backtesting. Meaning I wrote DLL to retreive the Tick data and then retreive the tick data for each time interval in my strategy. I did...
After jumping to a var/function definition, is there any keyboard shortcut to go back to the original place (to the place where Alt-M or Alt-G was used last)? If there isn't, I think it would be a good and highly usable feature. Recommend adding it. Thanks.
Hello All, I was just wondering if you know of an Indicator or System that doesn't loose twice consecutively? Thank you
What is the trick to consistently get the vital statistics to show up in the temporary box on the chart beside a candle when I rest my cursor on that candle?

I know the principles of the Gann fan and it's angles, but it seems impossible to get some reliable results in the MT4 charts. For example the 1x1 line in the Gann fan is based on a 1x1 square between price and time. This seems to be impossible because of the auto scaling, because this changes the...

Hi MetraTrader team, I use MT4, a legacy 32 bit XP application, to optimize multi-variable multi-currency multi-indicator multi-algorythm EAs. In a desperate attempt to cut the processing time down, I just got a very powerful 64 bit 12GB I7 machine, but...as you already know it did not do the...
Just a general observation. My MT5 uses nearly 500Mb of RAM compared with about 45Mb on MT4. I have exactly the same number of windows, and the same indicators on both. MT5 takes about 20 seconds to start up, whilst MT4 is almost instant. MT5 is, by comparison, very sluggish. MT5 uses about...

Hi, I am looking for a simple coded system that will enter a max of 1 long and 1 short position per daily bar (not at same time). variables would be X pips above and below the opening price, with a set stop loss and profit target.

Hi, I am testing MT5 and I think the following features would be great on MT4/MT5: 1) possibility ti choose if you want to see your trades in the new MT5 way (all blended in one line), or the MT4 way (one trade, one line); 2) possibility to split one order of more than 1 lot in many different...
